Abstract

Journalism today is looking for new ways to ensure its survival in a context of reconfiguration of media and communication processes. It tests several options, even it is aware that it is at risk of being trapped in some dimensions of the digital world. As the change progresses, there arise renewed proposals, placed between traditional and huge technological companies and social networks (namely, Google and Facebook), which appear as symptoms of a new era. And, while we wait for the hypothetical arrival of that improved background, both media and journalism look for their own room in social networks (from journalism in streaming to slow journalism). Their main goal is to experiment and to ensure their role in the networked society.
